Meet Dr. Robert Walcher
“A Life-Changing Injury”
At age 20, Doc Rob hurt his back severely and was unable to work or even tie his shoes. He went to the orthopedist and received medication and a referral to a physical therapist. After two weeks, still in pain, his father recommended he try chiropractic. As a biology major in college, Doc Rob was interested in anatomy and health and wanted to try something different.
An adjustment took just five minutes to significantly change Doc Rob’s path. He had an epiphany and felt blown away that something so quick could be that powerful. It was then he knew that he wanted to enter the profession and enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, California.
Relocating to the Philippines
Doc Rob graduated in 2000, then opened a clinic in San Diego. In 2013, he was ready to make a change. His wife Patricia Javier is a former actress from the Philippines, and they wanted to move their family there while the children were young. Doc Rob sold his practice, and they relocated to the Philippines intending to stay for a short period.
After understanding the demand for chiropractic care in Quezon City and seeing the transformations it made in the lives of people, Doc Rob opened the first Doc Rob’s Chiropractic Wellness Clinic location. The second clinic in Makati CBD followed two years later.
People come from all over the Philippines, some even traveling by airplane, to see Doc Rob and experience the incredible results of his care. He has years of experience in caring for all ages and different conditions and is the former team chiropractor for the Blackwater Elite PBA team.
An Active Lifestyle
Doc Rob enjoys staying fit in his spare time. He competes in CrossFit and has won competitions in the Philippines and took third place in the Asia championships. He and his wife have two children, and Doc Rob makes every effort to balance his home and work lives to make the most of life in Quezon City with his family.
